Life

Mukhopādhyāy was born in Manihari village of Purnia district (now Katihar District), Bihar on 19 July 1899. His father, Satyacharan Mukhopadhyay, was a doctor, and his mother was Mrinalini Devi. He originally took the pen name Banaphul ("the wild flower") to hide his literary activities from a disapproving teacher.

He was assigned to Patna Medical College and Hospital after completing his medical degree, and later practised at Azimgaunge Hospital and worked as a pathologist at Bhagalpur. He moved to Salt Lake, Calcutta, in 1968, and died there on 9 February 1979.
